Arsenal vs Liverpool Preview, Predictions, Team News: Here is a quick look at some suspension and injury news coming out from both sides. We will also understand how the result of this game will affect their rankings in the Premier League:
CMFs Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey will miss this game due to injuries. It is still doubtful if Shkodran Mustafi will play this game as he is still recovering from a muscle strain. We are expecting that Arsenal will approach this game with all the big names in action.
Arsenal is in 5th position with 33 ranks. They are only one point behind 4th and two points ahead of 7th position. With a win, they will enter the top four position. A defeat or draw will put them at risk of losing up to two positions on the points table.
There is a lot to deal with for Liverpool ahead of this big game in the Premier League. Liverpool will miss GK Adam Bogdan and Danny Ward, RB Nathaniel Clyne, CB Joel Matip and LB Alberto Moreno due to injuries. Matip looks ready for a return, but his presence on the field is still doubtful.
Liverpool is currently in a 4th position with 34 points. Since they are only one point ahead of their upcoming opponents, a defeat will put them one position down. With a victory, they will secure their position for a bit longer as Chelsea is four points ahead, impossible to achieve in one game.
